Trust in the Lord completely – Part 7

Proverbs 3:5Abraham Lincoln openly manifested trust in God. He declared, “The Almighty has His own purposes.” Lincoln appealed tothe providence of God,” insisting that “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.” He committed himself to “firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right.” By his signature on Congress’ bill, from an idea proposed by Chase, he made trust in God a prominent feature of American life.” Hence, I believe we observe “In God, we trust” as the official United State of America motto. This was a president who acknowledged that the only way for him to succeed in office was for him to completely trust in God. 

Brothers and sisters, would we trust God and make Him a prominent feature in our day to day lives and interactions, or are we going to put our trust in the arm of flesh?  The Bible says, “Cursed is the strong one who depends on mere humansWho thinks he can make it on muscle alone and sets God aside as dead weightHe’s like a tumbleweed on the prairieout of touch with the good earthHe lives rootless and aimless in a land where nothing grows.” Read Jeremiah 17:5 (MSG). 

Beloved, there are implications to not trusting in God, and as the people of God, we seem not to take the warnings of Scripture seriously because we say things like; “we are under grace,” which is true, but let us not be deceived because grace does not permit foolishness. The Bible says, “But be careful. Don’t let your heart be deceived so that you turn away from the Lord and serve and worship other gods.” Deuteronomy 11:16 (NLT). 

Here is God’s promise to you and me, “Those who trust in God are like Zion MountainNothing can move it, a rock-solid mountain you can always depend on.” Read Psalm 125:1 (MSG). In other words, the one who trusts in God is immovable and steady. My Father in heaven, thank You.

We write. You read. Be encouraged.
